Windows 7 I/O error

I then inserted the CD into a working desktop computer to make sure there were files on it and the following is what it includes: boot.cat; boot.msg; help2.msg; help.msg; initrd.g2; isolinux.bin; isolinux.cfg; logo.16; lupu_528.sfs; vmlinuz.
If the purpose of this is to recover data from the hard drive there really isn't anything on it that I need...how should we proceed in order to make it usable again (if at all possible)?
Thanks for your help

To access the recovery partition do the following...
Power off the laptop.
Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears.
Start tapping the zero key repeatedly at this point.
Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears.
The screen should flash HDD RECOVERY MODE for a second and then it will load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.
Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software.

As usual, Windows attempted to load the files, I received the I/O error message again at which point I pressed enter. This time after pressing enter though I received the following screen, "choose operating system to start or tab to select tool" with the following 3 options to choose from: "Windows Setup", "press F8 for advanced option" and "Tools: Windows Memory Diagnostic".
I did each one with the following results: After choosing "windows setup", it went through the "windows is loading files" again and back to the "I/O error". I then chose "press F8 for advanced option" and it did the exact same thing. Lastly I selected "tools: windows memory diagnostic" and the following appeared: "windows has failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer 2. Choose your language setting, and then click "next" 3. Click "repair your computer". If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance. File: \boot\memtest.exe. Status: 0xc000000f. Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
After all the above I did what you had instructed to do last with the same result as the original problem has shown.

It was brand new. We bought it in November 2010.

Earlier I mentioned contacting Toshiba to purchase a set of Recovery disks. hey should be $30 dollars or less. Have you contacted them or can I find the number for you?

Also, once I get the discs can I contact you by replying to our last post for help, if needed, or do I need to contact someone brand new?
Thanks for all your help, I appreciate your time!
